In the previous meeting between these two sides, Colchester United emerged 3-1 winners courtesy of a Jevani Brown hat-trick, while Boro's last win against Tuesday's opponents came in a 2-1 EFL Trophy triumph, via a first-half brace from striker Jason Cowley.

Before the game, Manager Alex Revell said, "The team have come a long way. We have to learn, we have to make sure that the confidence and belief that we have grown carries on over the next few weeks again.
 
We need to put right the scoreline from the game earlier in the season. That was one of my most disappointing days. Football is a fantastic thing that you always have the opportunity to put it right."

Colchester United first-team coach Steve Ball said, "There has been a few times this year where we have lost and then had a blank week, which I didn't want. If ever I want a game, it's now. 

The players were hurting after Morecambe, there was a bit of anger in there, disappointment and frustration, because we were the better side in the first half. We are going again, picking ourselves up, and getting prepared right for Tuesday."
